In an effort to improve our post-baby social life, Ryan and I had the idea to start hosting Sunday get togethers for our friends. I love planning menus and cooking for lots of people (though I usually forget something important and find myself scrambling at the last minute), and having people over is great motivation to make our house look less like it’s inhabited by frat boys. Thankfully our friends are generally pretty forgiving when they’re well-fed… Anyway, we’re kicking it off this weekend, and against all advice, I’m trying a couple new recipes for dessert: berry hand pies and sweet corn ice cream. Wish me luck! And have a nice, long weekend!

These pretzel earrings are too cute!

Amy Merrick does it again.

If I could sew, I’d sew this ink-dyed clutch.

I’m married to a life coach which means there’s no getting out of doing a life audit. Also probably pair designing.

Anyone know where I can find these adorable little strawberry bonbons in the States?

Paul Simon’s rendition of “Surfer Girl” is so beautiful and sweet.

Mojito ice cubes would be perfect in a glass of lemonade.

Loving these unique rings by Mociun.

Always a fan of a city hall wedding.

How sweet are these Little Prince pop-up cards?! (via Sara’s Pinterest)

I rarely venture outside the realm of little black swimsuits, but this minty number might just convince me.

What did I say? It wouldn’t be Friday without at least one s’mores recipe.

Fridays used to be days when I shared a little about what was going on with me, and then some fave links from my web browsing that week, and then (cliché warning) I had a baby and had a hard time coming up with things to say. Certainly part of that could be attributed to baby brain and lack of sleep and not being able to think straight long enough to form complete sentences even in simple face-to-face interactions. But I think it’s also partly due to the fact that a huge part of my life now revolves around Caroline, and I’m a) not sure how much of her I want to share with the internets and b) not sure how much the internets wants to hear about mama/baby stuff. Or at least, not here on a wedding blog. Also, if I’m being honest, it’s Friday. Doesn’t your brain just kind of want to kick back and have a cocktail, because mine does. I still want to do some more personal writing in some form or another; these weekend link round-ups just aren’t the place for it, and I’m not quite sure where is.

So, while I’m figuring that out, please enjoy these links, and have a lovely weekend! And if you’ve actually read all of this and have a (kindly-worded) opinion, I’m all ears!
